Special Seating

Reserve a seat at your ceremony with a name card or photograph.

Meaningful Decor

Display their picture on a photo table with a short description of who they were and what they taught you about love. Including their own wedding photos adds a special touch.

Ideal Toast

Toast in their memory at your reception, or take a moment of silence in their honor.

Dedicated Song

Play their favorite song before the ceremony or during the reception. Include a dedication with the song title in your program.

Sweet Bouquet

Incorporate their favorite flower in your bouquet, your groom’s boutonniere, or your floral arrangements. If they didn’t have a favorite flower, you can also use their favorite color in your wedding flowers for more options or use a locket with their photo attached to your bouquet.

Beautiful Reminder

Wear a reminder, such as jewelry, a brooch, or a handkerchief. You could even have a part of their clothes sewn into your wedding gown, or wear a piece of their wedding attire like your grandmother’s veil.

Light of Honor

Light a candle to represent their memory, during the ceremony or at the reception.
